The Diaper shirt set

This is a preemie diaper shirt that opens up flat so not to have to put arms with tubes in sleeves. A small crocheted blanket, booties and hat.

Miscarrage wrapper

The inside is double flannel with a plastic lining and crocheted edging. The outside is a knitted square with the ties that wrap around. I made the little booklet with the matching fabric as a keepsake.

The pink set

Everything here was purchased at a second hand store. The little giraffe was on a Noah's Arc wall hanging that I bought for $3.00 and still have several little stuffed animals that I can use with other packages. The yard for the crocheted had and booties was also part of a package of yarn for a small amount of money and it was really nice yarn with a satin feel.

Meeting Day

Today is the monthly meeting for the chapter of NewBorns in Need that I attend/donate to. Here is the group of things that I will be taking today....................

Not to worry...I will give you a peek inside...starting with the little group that gave me the pain in the neck recently...............

This is a gently used onesie outfit with crocheted booties and hat.

One of the goals of this chapter is to create a two gallon bag that includes blanket, onesie/outfit, sleeper, 5 newborn diapers tied with ribbon, washcloth (most handmade) enclosing a bar of Ivory soap and tied with ribbon, toy, booties and hat and giving to those in need as they leave the hospital. This little group will help to make up one of those bags. They also give to preemie's in hospitals and to bereavement of Nicu.
